I am simply amazed at the sheer number of hockey/Predators fans there are here in Murfreesboro. I have always maintained that if the Preds could somehow tap into it, it would make a solid dent into their attendance boost.

I worked a little bit with some of the management of the Knights/Knighthawks and there was always a large amount of Rutherford County representation in their season ticket sales.

I agree 100% and have always insisted on the same thing. 100k in M'boro, 250k estimated in Rutherford County... yet it seems that Franklin and Brentwood (175k in williamson) get the overwhelming majority of Preds marketing efforts.

Hopefully with M'boro building ice rinks it will help draw more attention and high school hockey will take off. Expanding the Music City Star to M'boro would help as well.
